U.S. Naval Academy Class of '67
Greetings from Annapolis.
In the fall of 2019, we will cheerfully welcome many out-of-town
classmates and families to the ’67 Village tailgate at Navy home football games.
We’ve posted a “Rules of the Road” link on the Calendar
for our tailgates and a graphic of the location just outside Gate D
on the Blue (Brigade) side of the stadium for future attendees.
Tailgates start at 1:00 pm (1300). Put down 2019 as a year
to join us in Annapolis as Navy enters its sixth year as a football member
Athletic Conference with renewed vigor. Kick-off times are all 3:30
Our traditional ’67 Homecoming dinner will be on Saturday,
October 26th (Tulane game) at Mike's
Crab House (Order off the menu; individual checks.) Details will
be out shortly.
Away & Bowl (hopefully) football games continue to be wonderful opportunities
for “local” classmates, and those coming in for the game,
to get together at either/both a Class event and the BIG Navy pre-game
The away games this year are:
26 September at Memphis (RV Chapter will be there)
12 October at Tulsa
1 November at Connecticut
16 November at Notre Dame – always a “ginormous” event
30 November at Houston
14 December in Philly: Army-Navy
If you are in one of the cities please consider getting a ’67
event going, or at the least join-up at either the Chapter event (usually
night before game day) or the Navy pre-game tailgate. Game event
details are always
Again, the Washington, D.C.-Annapolis-Baltimore megaplex ‘67ers will
gather at Alumni House for our traditional Army-Navy game TV party. Likewise,
the “’67 Legends” in the San Diego area will have
their mega Army-Navy party. Details on both will be out later.
Navy-Notre Dame in Ireland 2021! Many of our classmates are
planning to head across the pond to Ireland for the game. See www.navy2ireland.com.
The 2020 Annapolis area ’67 Golf Outing (21st) is TBD
as the Navy golf course is undergoing a major renovation over the next year.
Davey will keep us notified as to time/date/location.
As always, the recent traditional Annapolis ’67 I Day picnic was a
huge success. In 2020 we will shift from a “picnic” mode
to gathering at the Green Turtle restaurant/sports bar at the Annapolis
have a private room and not need to battle the heat/humidity.
With over 30 years of picnics under our belts we have earned
the right to relax in comfort as we do at the traditional Annapolis-area
in February-March of each year. While speaking of Dark Ages, the
Hampton Roads ’67 contingent will have their traditional Dark
Ages party again. Stay tuned for details on all the events.
I still have a few copies of our outstanding ’67 50th Anniversary
Book here in my office
The Class Store will open periodically – stay tuned for announcements
of the next opening.
As always, we need to stay über-organized as a class and maintain our
role and reputation as a leader and integral part of our greater alumni body.
We need to do our part to ensure USNA continues to be, now and in the future,
the national treasure it is. Your officers are able to lead the Class effectively
because we use the ’67 data in the Association’s robust database.
Please keep your profile updated at www.usna.com, (click at “My Account”).
Again, our Class Facebook page is where we, over 450 classmates
and spouses, are gathering many of our Class & family photos, videos, and news! (No
politics, no over the edge humor or controversial topics – just “family” material).
In that vein – I ask that you consider dropping our Class Scribe, Jim
McNeece email@example.com, a paragraph or two about what you & your
family have been up to in the past weeks/months/years! Our Shipmate
column is read by every Classmate and we are interested in what
you have to say!
Furthermore, on www.usna.com is a section www.usna.com/tributes-and-stories
and www.usna.com/sea-stories where you can add Sea Stories to our ’67
Class or another classes’ section. We have so many Sea Stories – please
take a few minutes and make your “history” permanent
for generations to come.
I ask all of you to consider keeping your USNA charitable
gifts coming to the USNA Foundation over the next years, while strongly
or becoming, at a minimum, an annual Presidents Circle member.
I also encourage all to consider the USNA Foundation Planned
Giving Program and becoming a member of the Robert Means Thompson Society.
the Foundation’s planned giving officer (firstname.lastname@example.org),
is a marvelous lady to talk with as you do your financial planning.
Several classmates have already worked with Patti on various planned

I urge all Classmates to be involved with your local Chapter!
need to attend all/any of the events or be a leader (although
many of our fellow classmates have been or are still serving
in leadership roles);
join and be connected to USNA through another avenue.
Finally: 2022 is just around the corner. Our 55th Reunion
committee is already looking into what we will do to celebrate another
half-decade of life and
service. Start making your plans now to attend.
I again want to thank Wayne Savage (VP), Jim McNeece (Scribe),
Jack Parry (Treasurer), Dick Meade (Web and Database Guru - “Dick of the Database” -
